Product Details
Antique, serial #90155 This offering is for the pictured Uruguyan Mauser M71 Daudeteau Rifle. In good looking condition and has an interesting bit of history.

Essentially this was a German M71 Mauser purchased by Uruguay for military service in caliber 11mm Mauser. In 1897 these were sent for upgrade/conversion to a new 6.5mm smokeless caliber. The contract work was done by SFAP, Société Française d'Armes Portatives in Saint Denis France. This deal was made possible by a Mr. Dovitis, Greek/Uruguyan businessman and as such the rifles are sometimes called the "Dovitis Mauser".

The conversion/update included:  new stocks, barrels, sights, bands, and side mounted cleaning rods.

Matching serial numbers bolt to receiver. Single shot bolt action design, metal is worn to gun metal gray with light patina with a brass trigger guard. Bolt is correctly brite. The cleaning rod is an Italian replacement, rear band spring appears to be a M71 and slightly short. 

Sound hardwood stock is a handsome lighter tone, appears sanded and refinished. 

Chambered in 6.5 Daudeteau the bore has very good rifling, smooth lands and grooves. Not import marked.
 
Makes a fine rifle for the military collector.
